History and University Studies “Clusters”

Remember that all incoming students now need to develop a “thematic transdisciplinary cluster” of three themed courses. (link to http://uncw.edu/universitystudies/thematictransdisciplinaryclusters.html)

OR

A minor

OR

A second major

History makes a great minor and pairs well with many other majors, but if you are working towards a cluster, history courses are currently connected to the following “clusters:”

Ancient Thought and Culture—HST 101

Global Diversity—HST 104 and HST 367

Immigration—HST 106 and HST 340

Judaism and the Jewish People—HST 207, HST 208, and HST 385
